This is a fantastic article and a great reminder to challenge employment restrictions on hearing loss. Policies restricting opportunities for hard of hearing people are rarely well thought out. Most hearing people cannot imagine functioning without full hearing. Thus, employers and agencies are often unfamiliar with what people with hearing loss can do with appropriate accommodations.
Learning to challenge stereotypes and ask for accommodations is a skill. Be sure to reach out to local hearing loss organizations. Mentorship can be crucial for success in the workplace when dealing with hearing loss.
